    • A Cavalcade Of Clusters: The Interplay Between Atomic And Electronic Structure In Complex Intermetallics 

      Henderson, Ryan (2013-01-28)
      What drives the stability of complex intermetallic compounds? Many, if not most, metals and alloys crystallize in one of the familiar body-centered cubic (bcc), face-centered cubic (fcc), or hexagonal close-packed (hcp) ...
